Work Notes

I love how a trace of rain transforms a garden, even one that is already doing very well. I see the same in the neighbors and in myself. Our greens are more vivid and intense in the charged atmosphere; our purples and reds draw notice from the hummingbirds.

I wonder now if, in all my years of writing, I have ever used the word aura. I think not. But it may well be that in this connection I should.

A row of poems, still tender, just beginning to climb.

Someone weeping for joy in the night.
